THE YOUNG KING
BY OSCAR WILDE
ADAPTED FOR THE STAGE BY NICKI BLOOM
You are cordially invited to participate in the coronation celebrations for The Young King.
What kind of King would you be? A naïve boy raised by goatherds is discovered to be Heir to the kingdom. Treasures and privileges are laid at his feet, but at what cost to others?
The achingly beautiful and tender language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate and magical world of internationally acclaimed Adelaide theatre company, Slingsby. Journey in wonder, to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards.
